Many people consider the football season with the Superbowl finally to be the best part of the year and we won't let them down with our party tips, ideas, videos, & recipes.

With football party planning in full swing for the energized game between favorite teams, Family Frugal Fun is releasing their top football party planning tips & ideas. "I'm really excited about this years football season," says Maggie Miller, expert frugal blogger at Family Frugal Fun. "Plus we've partnered with my favorite foodie, Carol Thames of Kooky Carols Kitchen Concoctions to have the best Superbowl party foods & recipes that you'd find at any Baltimore Ravens party," says Miller. "Maryland is known for Old Bay seasonings and I've come up with the best recipe for Old Bay Chicken Wings to give you the feeling of being in Baltimore at a local party with the Ravens," boasts Carol Thames.

Here are 6 Tips to have a frugal, family-fun Football Party:
-Create a tailgating atmosphere at home. Have a cooler set up by the couch, have snack foods readily available and make sure to have purple decorations, cups and paper goods on hand.

-Prep food the day before to save time (and stress) on the day of the party. Also, use disposable trays & plates that you've purchased on sale and saved in your pantry or that are currently on sale. Clean up needs to be fast & easy since the Superbowl falls on a work night for most people.

-Have a party theme for your party. Make Baltimore Maryland foods (like Old Bay Wings from Kooky Carols Kitchen Concoctions), San Francisco foods or home cooked Louisiana foods since they're hosting the Superbowl this year.

-Make kid-friendly football Party Food: Chicken Tenders, finger foods, healthy snacks, celery sticks with peanut butter & don't forget juice boxes. This isn't the night to clean up any spills.

-Have crayons & activity books on hand to keep young party guests occupied who may get bored during the game. Also consider renting a movie from RedBox or Blockbuster Express, or using Netflix on a computer or TV in another room.

-Save money with DIY party trays. Buy crackers on sale, and assemble with pre-sliced cheese. Make your own vegetable tray with homemade dipping sauce. This will save a lot of money versus buying trays in the deli section of your local grocery store.
